Sports Illustrated Kids “SportsParent of the Year” Contest

Whenever I think about children’s sports, I think about the effort that the child puts into playing.  There are practices to attend, grades to keep up with and of course, the actual games.  All of the above are reasons that I love youth sports.  They help to teach a child about being part of a team and working hard to succeed.   However, there are also other people that I think of when it comes to youth sports, the parents of the athletes.

Sports Illustrated Kids LogoParents work hard to support their children, whether it is through attending games, being a coach or offering a hug after a loss.  That is why this year, Sports Illustrated Kids will be honoring a parent by naming them as SportsParent of the Year.  Sports Illustrated Kids is asking for us to nominate the person that could be the first SportsParent of the Year.

By visiting, you can nominate anyone that you feel has the qualities to inspire and share a love of sports with children.  There can only be one nomination made per email account and the deadline is 9/24.  For official rules, please visit the Sports Illustrated Kids website.

SportsParent of the YearThe grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 gift card to help support their community team’s sports needs.  They will also have the possibility of  appearing in Sports Illustrated Kids or on the SI Kids website.

If you know of someone that would be the perfect SportsParent of the Year, don’t wait, nominate them today.

I received a subscription of SI Kids for sharing the SportsParent of the Year contest.
